Unlike most serums on the market today, Vichy‘s Idéalia Life Serum acts as both a radiance primer and skin transformer that will give you a more even, radiant and fresh complexion for a more ideal skin tone no matter your age or ethnicity.
Idéalia Life Serum targets behavioural aging which is anything having to do with the environment around us and the effects it has on our skin, like stress, pollution and smoke, UV rays and even an unbalanced diet which all reduce the quality of our skin. It’s formulated with LR2412+LHA, an anti-aging correcting complex that helps repair damage to the skin. The serum works on all skin types, even sensitive skin and is also hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and paraben-free.
Price: $59 CAD / 30ml / Shoppers Drug Mart
How to Apply: Use morning and night under your moisturizer or treatment cream.
The idea of using a serum that works also as a radiance boosting primer was very intriguing for me. It’s unlike a lot of serums because it has a light creamy texture and you can actually see when you pump a drop of it out that there is a pink and gold pearlescent shine to it. As soon as you put it on, you will notice right off the bat that your skin looks a bit more refreshed and awake. I’ve been using this serum every day for a few weeks now and have noticed that my skin tone definitely looks more even and smooth and I have less problem areas to correct with foundation. It works really nicely with not only other Vichy products, obviously, but other anti-aging treatments because of the way that it will still maintain your skin’s luminosity underneath other products. A pump of the serum is pretty much all you need so I still have a good amount of it left in the bottle. From a price standpoint, it is a pricey serum but if you’re looking to boost your skin’s radiance and over time make it look more even and refined, you will really benefit from this product!
